A good cheap NIC

Edwardb92, Dooyoo
20 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This network interface card can be picked up for about £20 nowadays and is the card i used in my old PC, which is rarely used now but still has adequate capabilities. This network interface card was actually the one that came when we purchased it and can be easily found. The NIC (Network Interface Card) is produced by Belkin appears to be like any other network card in terms of appearance and so fitting it is fairly easy.

belkin gigabit NIC

rjheartfield, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: This gigabit NIC for the price is outstanding. It does the job required without any complaints - if not a little resource hungry. Taking into consideration the price, no needs for drivers (Windows sees this as a generic NIC and so has in built drivers that can be used for it). This is an excellent product i would recommend to anyone looking for a low cost high speed NIC, for a desktop or tower server.

Great to start with but then...

Sparrowhawk "Steve", Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: The card was simplicity itself to install, provided you've installed the Belkin software first. It certainly speeded up traffic between my PC and my NAS devices. But. After a couple of months, it started to erratically drop speed down to 100Mbs - sometimes it would boot at 1000Mps and stay there for a while before dropping down and then stepping back up again, sometimes it would drop to 100Mps and stay there, and at others (especially after a restart) it would only start...

No problems

JM, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: Installed a doddle, though the drivers the Windows Vista Business tried to install by default were slightly old (meaning less configuration options), but this was easily corrected by installing the latest drivers from the belkin website (note - choose realtek drivers, not Belkin!). Performance-wise, this card seems to be as good as expected. I can get top speeds of about 45MB/s (360Mb/s), and I suspect my network bottle neck lies elsewhere and not with this card.

  • Summary: ABIT UL8 mother board running Win XP Pro, SP3, 1 gig Ram, Airport Extreme Base Station-Gigabit Ethernet Win XP didn't initially recognise the card so I downloaded the latest driver from Belkin. From then on the card has worked very well happily connected to my Airport extreme base station & has increase my network speed significantly. Regards.

belkin gigabit network

DOC W "Doc", Amazon
11 October 2009
  • Summary: We bought this as a simple replacement for an ageing server when the existing netgear card suddenly stopped working after annual pat testing although the server was only supposedly inspected visually and was not tested with high voltage. (logs said differently as it was turned off without shut down). Droppped it in loaded drivers, changed to static addresses and away it went no problem.

Does exactly what it says on the tin

Reader from London, Amazon
27 September 2009
  • Summary: Simple, sensibly priced card to upgrade a PC from the stanard 10/100 network connection to full-blown Gigabit (i.e. 'up to 1000') which can be very useful when moving large files around a home network (e.g. video onto a Network Attached Storage device) ...
